The liberal media wants you to think that is the scandal -- not Obama's abuse of presidential power by conducting political espionage.

This is a shape-shifting of the news, which liberals are extremely clever at. They set the news agenda and public perception of the story.
Note the latest report from CNN:
Amid turmoil, House Intel Committee scraps meetings this week
The House Intelligence Committee has scrapped all meetings this week amid growing partisan rancor now threatening to derail its investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign.
The full committee meetings were canceled amid an increasingly tense back-and-forth that intensified over Chairman Devin Nunes' decision to cancel a public hearing set for Tuesday, two sources on the committee told CNN.
The controversy widened as Democrats called on Nunes to step aside because of his decision to brief President Donald Trump on intelligence information he received from a source on White House grounds.OK, what was that intelligence information?
The story does not say.
CNN ignored the real scandal of Obama spying on Trump -- just as Trump claimed in an email on March 4. For weeks CNN droned on and on about how Trump had no proof. Now that Trump does have proof
So CNN would have you believe that the scandal is Nunes telling the president he was spied on -- and not that Obama spied on a political opponent.
The media wants to make the scandal that Nunes went to Trump without informing the committee's top Democrat, Adam Schiff.
Why would Nunes tip Democrats off like that?
CNN did not even mention Obama in its report.
In a 1,200-word report on this development, the New York Times mentioned Obama.
In the last paragraph:
Mr. Nunes then defended his decision to bypass Mr. Schiff and go to the White House, saying he felt a “duty” to tell Mr. Trump because of Democrats’ “relentless” political attacks.
“If we would have crossed paths in the hall, maybe I would have said something to him,” Mr. Nunes said in an interview. “But what I was trying to do was get to the president as quick as possible.”
At that point, Mr. Trump seized on the information, saying he felt “somewhat” vindicated in his wiretapping claim against former President Barack Obama — debunked by the F.B.I. director and the director of the National Security Agency, as well as the heads of the Senate and House investigations, including Mr. Nunes.The big scandal is that our first Marxist president abused power.
The subsidiary scandal is that the Marxist media wants to punish the victim.
